The One I Loved Back Then (The Corvette Song)  
recorded by George Jones

written by Gary Gentry
G                                       C        G
I stopped off at the Quicksack for some beer and cigarettes
     C               G                        D7
This old man took my money as he stared at my Corvette
    G                                    C
He said I had one just like her son in 1963
         G               D7                 G
Till the man down at the bank took her from me

Oh she was hotter than a two dollar pistol
            C             G
She was the fastest thing around
C                   G
Long and lean every young man's dream
She turned every head in town
She was built and fun to handle son
I'm glad that you walked in
                      G     D7         G
She reminds me of the one I loved back then
                                        C              G
Well I handed him my keys and said here take her for a spin
    C                     G                             D7
The old man scratched his head then he looked at me and grinned
         G                                               C
He said son you just don't understand it ain't the car I want
                          G          D7       G
It's the brunette in your Vette that turns me on
Repeat #2
